Thanks. I do this on a fairly regular basis. Like once a year at least. Man it hurt falling down.
I'm off my brace now, so I'm just being careful, wearing sneakers and such.
I always think about stuff like this when going down the stairs...especially if the dogs are with me. Good that you're off the brace. When my older one broke her ankle earlier this year, life became so much easier when we were able to ditch the boot and then the brace.
